Windows 7 internet browser problems

Hi, I have been having some problems with my internet browsers for the past 5 or 6 months. They are really slow and sometimes don't load, then I have to refresh the page a ton and it eventually loads slowly and not surely. Speedtest.net says 10mbps. Video Games play fine, with no lag at all, and my friends computers are fine on my internet. My system came with vista and i upgraded on the windows 7 release date. Somebody please help, I cant stand this anymore.
Feel free to ask any questions.
Take a look at the image attachments.

Several solutions

Try another browser, Chrome is nice

or

Go to tools
internet options
advanced
reset if using IE8

This wll remove the addons, the probable cause.

If that does not work, it is probably not the browser, try this

You did not say HOW you upgraded to Win7. You should do a clean install: http://www.winsupersite.com/win7/cle...rade_media.asp

Clean install is always best.

There are probably easier ways to solve this problem, but it is suggested that a clean install is the best way to install the new OS>

Try clearing the cache, temp files and cookies. Run a program like CCleaner(free) to clean your hard drive. http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner

You know what. I upgraded (clean install) to windows 7 x64 from XP a few months back and that also seems to be happening a lot more to me as well. It especially weird that google search misses a fair bit and shows up as not there and needing a retry.

I was also trialing Chrome for a while and thought it might be part of the problem, but I have since gone back to firefox and it persists.

I also have a 10Mb ISP and get downloads at full 10Mb, but still more frequent than I would like web page glitches (google search especially noticeable).

Either there is a glitch in the 7 stack or perhaps an ISP issue.

I am on Rogers Cable in Ottawa, FWIW.

Will the clean install affect any of my data on my hard drive?
